Fodor's Expert Review JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort

400 S. Collier Blvd., Marco Island, Florida, 34145, USA

A grandiose circular drive with rock waterfalls front this hilltop, beachfront resort that has nearly completed a $320-million makeover and rebranding journey to becoming the first-ever JW Marriott on the beach in the continental U.S. Made up of twin 11-story towers and villa-like suites, three on-site pools, and the widest stretch of sand on the island (over 3 miles), it's an island-seekers dream. The ambience is comfortably casual yet sophisticated with a distinct Balinese flair that makes every ounce of stress just melt into those magnificent horizon views. Shops, restaurants with uberimpressive decor and menus, and the large, plush rooms with new plug-in technology make leaving the resort for anything a silly idea. The newly transformed SPA by JW is massive and offers ultrapampering services. Kids love the zero-entry pool with a slide and water features. The hotel's two golf courses are 10 minutes away by shuttle. In fall 2017, a new Lanai Tower will open, offering adult-only condo-style accommodations, dripping in opulence.
